Increasing Crime Rates in 2012 January 13, 2014Posted by geoff in News.
Last year we pointed out that after a long period of decline in violent crime, 2010 showed the first increase in crime. I’m none too happy to tell you that 2011 and 2012 continued that increase, as you can see from the Bureau of Justice Statistics’ own chart:
Property crime in 2012 increased by 15% as well. So huzzah for the President and his administration, who have made America less safe at home and abroad in an incredibly short period of time.
